On Thursday, January 19, 2023 at 10:00am, the Township of Hamilton Municipal Council and Staff will be reviewing the 2023 Draft Budget at a Special Council Meeting dedicated to the budget.
Township Staff and Council have been developing the 2023 Budget since Summer 2022. During this preparation time, a public budget survey was issued through the Township’s Community Engagement and Survey webpage. Public comments and feedback were received and considered during the creation of the 2023 Budget.
The 2023 Draft Operating Budget proposes a 6.6% tax levy increase. Factoring in assessment growth of 0.9% from 2022 as provided by the Municipal Assessment Corporation (MPAC), the net levy increase for 2023 is 5.7%.
